This text presents Oscar Wilde's entire three-act play as a full-colour graphic novel.

In the text, two young gentlemen living in 1890's England use imaginary friends to inject some excitement into their seemingly dull lives. Jack Worthing invents a brother, 'Ernest,' whom he pretends to be in order to visit his beloved Gwendolen in the city. Meanwhile, friend Algy Moncrieff uses the name 'Ernest' while visiting Jack's beautiful young ward, Cecily in the country. Much confusion ensues as the two women find out they have been deceived by their 'Ernests.' Some would call this a society comedy; others, a Victorian farce. Regardless of the term used, this full-colour graphic novel captures the era effortlessly.

With an intricate attention to detail, wonderful characterization and dramatically expressive and humorous artwork, this really is a graphic novel to cherish.
